Our room was decorated very tastfuly. We could park right in front of our room. Breakfast was good over the top infact. We wish we would have just stayed here for our vacation insted of paying a fortune for a cabin. Next time we visit Pigon Forge we will stay here the whole trip!

We stayed for several days on the poolside and could walk out of our door to the pool without getting cold. Pool and jacuzzi was lots of fun - pool is from 3-5 feet deep and was warm. Room was CLEAN and nicely decorated and a little small. We used the in-room refrigerator, hair dryer and iron w/ironing board as well as the clean microwave and all was in new condition and great working order. Beds were clean and comfy with extra pillows. Maid service did a great job and cleaned our room every day even though we stayed several days.The only thing that bugged me was the wi-fi that was spotty at BEST. I called the front desk and the lady said I should be getting a good wi-fi connection in my location, she reset the router, which improved the connection for about 5 minutes then right back to cutting off and barely any reception. We just learned to live with it while using our laptops. I would have mentioned this at checkout but front desk staff Dena didn't ask how my stay was so I didn't offer any feedback. She did, however, smile and say thanks. Breakfast was great!! There is a nice dinning area that is large enough to support many patrons. I would have felt a little more satisfied with pancakes or a waffle maker but hey, it was pretty great the way it was with biscuits, gravy, sausage links, scrambled eggs, pastries, juice, cereal, etc. Overall, I feel like this hotel strives to please its guests and does its best at all times and I have already recommended it to friends! My family and I made good memories here and will definitely return. Thanks Econo Lodge Riverside!

Room Tip: Ground floor poolside so you don't have to be cold when you get out of the pool.

My family and I stayed here last year for spring break. I was MORE than impressed. The staff was friendly the breakfast was good, the room was clean and the pool was great. My Children LOVED the fact that they could go right outside the room and feed the ducks and geese. When we stayed the hotel was also running a special for two days worth of tickets to dollywood for the price of one so that was sooo worth it. Already planning to re book again for another wonderful trip to Dollywood and Pigeon Forge.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Econo Lodge Riverside in Pigeon Forge. It is a lot nicer than the other ones look and a lot of the other hotels I have stayed at in Sevierville. We stayed in a room with a jacuzzi tub, and it was wonderful. The room was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. This room fit our needs to take a night off and relax. The only complaint I would make is that it is a little pricey for the one-night stay and that the indoor pool closed at 11, so we did not get a chance to visit the pool or hot tub.

We are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your recent stay with us. It definately makes us feel appreciated and we want you to know how much we appreciate you. Without our guests we would not be here. It would be great if there were no guest rooms in the pool solarium and we could have it open 24 hours. But those staying have to get some rest as well. Thank you again for your comments and for staying with us. Have a great day.

Of the three Econo Lodges in P.F. This is the one to stay at! It's clean, backs up the the river, and has an indoor pool and hot tub. Very nice rooms, it seemed like a mini cabin when we walked in. Great location in the middle of things, but area wasn't too busy.

Only 2 complaints would be ...
that breakfast was always the same. Biscuits, scrambled eggs, sausage links and gravy. Never changed to bacon, or pancakes... No waffle maker like many other hotels. Same breakfast got old fast, but it was nice that it was available.

Bed was kinda hard. Was fine the first two nights, but the next five were rough.

Our family stays here just about every time we visit Pigeon Forge! My son loves the pool and my daughter and I love the hot tub. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is good as well. Staff is always very nice and helpful. We will continue to stay here for years to come! Oh yeah and the price is right!

Room Tip: The river view is nice. And some of the courtyard view rooms have a nice view of the mountains.
